Jurassic World: Dominion director hits back at T-Rex criticism

"Sometimes revenge takes time."

Jurassic World: Dominion spoilers follow.

Jurassic World: Dominion premiered earlier this month, dominating the box office despite a mixed reaction. One of the criticisms that director Colin Trevorrow has responded to surrounds the Tyrannosaurus rex.

The climax of the movie saw a final battle, with the T-Rex and Therizinosaurus facing off against the Giganotosaurus.

While the epic showdown had some fans at the edge of their seats, others were left unimpressed, claiming that the presence of the Giganotosaurus made the T-Rex look weaker.

One person who expressed this was actor Angel Rosario Jr, who tweeted at Trevorrow over the handling of the T-Rex in the film.

“Hey, @colintrevorrow… ya made the Rex look weak. Again. Come on now!" he wrote. "It's the face of the franchise. Terrible. The Giga might have been strong, but science proves the Rex was a better predator, and stronger. Very disappointed in your utilization of Rexy."

Trevorrow responded to the comment by suggesting that the T-Rex's age partly explained why she perhaps wasn't as formidable as she could have been.

"I understand the feeling," he wrote. "Worth noting the T. Rex had an average lifespan of 28 years, so our Rexy would be near the end of her life in Dominion.

"Even at that age, she found the strength to rise up and avenge her own death, 65 million years later. Sometimes revenge takes time."

Rosario seemed satisfied with Trevorrow's response, later tweeting: "Got a response from the great @colintrevorrow about Dominion. Though conflicting arguments about the Rex…as an actor, I’d love to work on a project with you, sir.

"Respect and admiration for your work, sir. Hope we can talk about it face to face someday!"

Earlier this month, Trevorrow gave a response to another burning question: why Lex and Tim from the classic Jurassic Park films were absent in Dominion.

"Every one of these characters takes up so much oxygen in every room they step into that we really needed to be careful and thoughtful," he said.

Jurassic World 3 is now playing in US and UK cinemas.
